For those of you who are interested in trying neem leaf. What has apperently been safe for use over thousands of years is dried or fresh neem leaves, this equates to "neem leaf powder", which is just ground up neem leaves. I have read both neem leaf extracts and oils may be toxic, especially if used over long periods of time. These are much more potent than what was traditionally used in ancient and alternative medicine. Although, neem leaf oil is considered GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA for the use as a pesticide on agricultural products, the use of neem oil products sold for humans is for topical use on skin.nathan - did you use seed or leaf neem?
I used Neam leaf powder. I bought this powder from the herbal shop and I fill this into empty capsules. I eat this daily one (after wakeup, before eating / drinking) from the past two and two half months. I got the result within 20 days after this usage. As posted in my previous mail, my doctor suspected muscle weakness. Over a period of time, my doctor and I both concluded that it is not due to muscle weakness for the following reasons.
a) Some times I experienced POIS symptoms starting after 15 to 20 hours after orgasm.
b) Some times without having orgasm, I got POIS symptoms by watching sexual scenes and movies.
c) further doctor told if it is a mucle weakness then there will be a heavy physical strain. But in POIS period, physically I am very strong. I can hit even 10 people if required, but my mental status was worst.
d) Further, on my face, I had white patches like pimple which is filled up with white liquid. skin specialist tested this and he concluded that this is not a pimples, rather a patches because of allergy in the body.
So, I started searching for cure for allergy. In one of the website I found a post by one person who was suffering from depression, headche, mental stress, reddish eyes, brain fog (same as POIS symtoms) after eating sea foods and this will gradually cured in 3 days. He took neem capsule for 4 months. Afterwords his problem was completely cured. Based on this, I asked my friend who is a herbal products dealer. He suggested me to try this. Because of this I tried this product and it has worked for me.
Further, Yesterday I tested my sperm levels, as in some website it says Neem will decrease the sperm counts which is reversible nature. But for me there was no decrease and all levels are normal in semen. So, I thought I may be cured (not fully say 90%) because of following benefits of neem
1) It increases immune system capability.
2) Decreases auto immune diseases.
3) Decreases allergy
4) one of the good anit-oxidant
5) Fight against virus, bacteria if it is there in body.
I think this looks like a good experiment to try neem leaf poweder, but i would be carefull of using neem oil or extract for an extended period of time.
also on another note, I read that the male contraceptive experiment was misrepresented and that most likely it was the women that also used neem oil intravaginally before sex, which provides spermicidal properties for up to five hours after insertion.
